Michail, 23 November 2020

Disney’s hit series The Mandalorian is the latest addition to Google’s AR experiments with the release of The Mandalorian AR Experience app on Google Play. The free app puts you as a bounty hunter on the trail of Mandalorian and his accomplice Baby Yoda through key locations from Season 1 of the show.

Google says it worked closely with Disney to optimize character models and scenes for 5G devices, but you don't actually need a 5G connection to run the app. Content from Season 2 of the show will be added to the app soon.

You can explore, capture and shares the AR experience all from your phone. The app is built on Google’s own ARCore platform and only works on a select group of 5G phones headlined by Google’s own Pixel 4a 5G and Pixel 5. Here is the list of supported phones for now. Google is promising support for additional 5G Android phones soon.

Now you can decide for yourself if Google or Disney is worse 😂 youtube.com/watch?v=TgwmJ8tJWVI

I have Thinkpad X1 from Lenovo with Linux Ubuntu and Firefox as a browser, my mail is from my provider; don't want Google to read all my emails. Slowly but surely no one single piece of US tech.
